Silver Prices Today Are Climbing – Will the Rally Continue?

Silver prices today are up. Silver's been performing well compared to overall markets this year.

It has not been as strong as gold, though. But there are signs that silver has support going forward...

Here are the biggest factors moving silver prices now...

The Generational Investments to Stay Safe in This Market

Prisoner shackle with word "debt" on the iron ball, concept of escaping debt and dependency on credit. Isolated on white background.

Stocks actually rose last week, although you'd be hard-pressed to find an investor or hedge fund manager who is feeling good about things right now.

But the Dow Jones Industrial Average did in fact gain 105 points or 0.7% to close at 16,093.53 while the S&P 500 rose by 1.4% or 27 points to 1906.90.

That said, when the markets finally recover, silver will bounce back. And these long play plays will help you partake in those gains…

The Fed's two-day meeting on Dec. 15-16 is nearing, so it's time to look at what impact a likely interest rate hike will have on silver prices.

When the Fed raises interest rates, the value of the U.S. dollar increases, which also makes dollar-denominated commodities more expensive.

This reduces the demand for precious metals like silver, sending silver prices lower.

But this upcoming December rate hike will affect silver differently than in the past...
